BECC watchdog to educate consumers about guide featured on new appliances

BOULDER – Energyguides, energy consumption and kilowatt-hours per year do not mean much to the average consumer, but they do to the Boulder Energy Conservation Center (BECC).

The watchdog for energy-efficient practices in the county, the BECC intends to educate consumers about the Energyguide featured on many new appliances. Energyguides show the consumer the amount of energy a typical appliance uses in one year. This allows the consumer to shop for the most efficient appliance.

According to the BECC, in Boulder County the consumer pays the power company 7 cents to 8 cents per kilowatt-hour. An appliance with a low number of kilowatt-hours will save the consumer money, reduce the strain on the power company and protect vital energy resources.

The Energyguide will usually rate similar appliances on a scale of least kilowatt-hours used to most kilowatt-hours used. The Energyguide will also show the consumer the appliances annual operating cost. A low number in this category will, again, save the consumer money.

To reach the BECC, call (303) 441-3278.
